West Ham fullback Cresswell: We can't dwell on this

West Ham United fullback Aaron Cresswell says they can't dwell on their 5-0 home defeat to Manchester City.

A hat-trick from Raheem Sterling and goals from Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero saw the reigning Premier League champions win at London Stadium on a difficult afternoon for the Irons.

“This one game isn't going to define our season," Cresswell explained. “We have another game next week that we need to look forward to, capitalise on and take three points from there.

“They were clinical. They've had six or seven chances and scored five goals.

"Looking at it from our point of view, we had some good spells but in general it wasn't good enough.

“It the first half the game was close. Once they got the second and third it was game over. It's difficult to come back against City, but we will review the game, look at what went wrong and try to put it right next week."
